Mango Sheera Recipe

Mango Sheera Recipe

I love the summer. It brings with it beautiful flowers, warmer weather, less rain and mangoes. Lots and lots of mangoes. Mango in any recipe is like summer in a bowl. Add some mango to your regular sheera or sooji ka halwa and it becomes divine. Mango sheera can be refrigerated for upto 4 days.

Make it in the morning and serve it hot for breakfast. Chill it and serve it after a meal and it becomes dessert. Please try it once. You will not regret it.

I have used the Atulfo variety of mangoes in this recipe. There are hundreds of different breeds of mangoes. To learn more about mangoes, click here. My favorite one is Mancurad from Goa. It is the sweetest mango you will ever have tasted. Last year I tried planting a mango seed. The plant is in a pot because it won’t survive the harsh winter in our region. It will likely be a dwarf tree but it is doing well so far. I have it by my basement door in a large pot. So it gets some sunlight during the day.

Notes

Quantity of sugar depends on how sweet your mangoes are. 
I prefer fresh mangoes to canned pulp. I have tried canned and since it is already sweetened, it needs less sugar.
